Wigan Athletic were the form team for the last quarter of last season and so you would expect the TV companies to want to watch a team playing excellent football, right?

The reality is that Wigan are again put to one side, we feature on the opening weekend, our game being moved to the Sunday 1.30 p.m. kick off slot for SKY.

We don’t then feature until the 28th November, at home on a Wednesday night to Champions Manchester City again on SKY.

ESPN have yet again overlooked us from their opening half schedule, but I suppose if we get fewer games televised we can expect the ground to swell a little hey.

It has been noted that West ham feature a massive 7 times in the same period!!!!!!
